...unless you want constant grief.<br><br>The complex itself is in extremely shabby condition, having been initially started in the mid-70's (and, apparantly, not majorly updated since). The Phase II section is a total ------ with a high crime rate.<br><br>I have had to struggle with management for a month over a blown light bulb in the outside hallway, only to replace it myself after several requests went unheeded. Our particular building has no external lighting as all of the mercury-vapor lights are blown (it has been this way for at least 9 months).<br><br>The parking lot this past winter was very rarely attended to and, when it was, many cars were stuck in their spots because the plow would just push the snow up behind cars.<br><br>The cops frequent the park yes, but what you are not told is the number of them and also fire trucks and ambulances that fly through here on a weekly basis for some emergency or another in the Phase II section.<br><br>The indoor "gym" is a joke (umm, like 3 treadmills, 3 stair machines, and a bench?). The laundromat is closed weekends, is unattended, and looks as though it hasn't been cleaned nor updated since it was built in the 70's.<br><br>The residents are usually noisy and fairly inconsiderate (at least in our building). Most of this noise is in the form of vulgar, uncensored rap music.<br><br>The maintenance crews can often be found lollygagging around instead of actually working.<br><br>If you have any children, be careful. The Michigan Sex Offender registry lists several child offenders in our complex.<br><br>If you are fortunate to get your mailbox key within the first few weeks, you may or may not be told which box is yours. Which, in the case of building 5, doesn't really matter as the mailbox itself is about to fall over.<br><br>Bottom line: if you want to come live here, be prepared to put up with a lot of BS.
